    Files not visible in folder

    I have several folders containing Excel workbooks as well as other files. Once office is open and I have worked on a filed and saved this and when I later try to retrieve the file, I cannot find it. I then close Office (Office 2010) and then re-open I can fiind the file

    It would be appreciated if someone could assist me in resolving this annoying problem

    Hi Howard,

    You can find it by clicking on File then Open within Excel.

    Hi Howard

    If you are using Excel2010, you can use File > Options > Advanced
    ..then scroll down to Display, then change the number for Show this number of Recent Documents to say, 25 (that's the number I use). Then click [OK]

    Now, instead of using File > Open
    ..use File > Recent


    ..just thought you might like to know this method.

    Howard,

    You'll find it in any Explorer window be it Windows/File Explorer or an Office app's Open or Save dialog. HTH

    Hi RG

    just to let you know..
    ..on my Win7 system, if I use Excel2003, there is no 'refresh' button when using File Open or File Save.
    ..on the same system, if I use Excel2007, Excel2010 or Excel2013, there is a 'refresh' button

    Zeddy,

    Thanks for the reminder. I don't remember this problem happening before the release of Windows 7. Of course that could just be me.
